National Capital Trolley Museum, Washington, D.C.

This museum, in Maryland just north of Washington, D.C. suffered a disastrous fire which destroyed many of its trolley-cars. However, two PCC cars were available on the day that I visited, leaving Eufron in the hotel.

Plough for conduit system. Unlike those in London, ploughs were not run in at street level: there had to be a man in the change-pit to plug in the power connectors, visible on top of the plough.
